Gunmen Attack Security Facilities In Imo, Free Inmates

Gunmen Monday morning attacked correctional facility in Owerri, the Imo State capital, and freed inmates.

The Imo State Police Command headquarters and SCID building situated in the state capital were also attacked in the early morning raid, which a security source said started around 1 am.

Although the police said “some inmates” were freed, a media report claimed as much as 1, 500 inmates escaped.

“At about 0100hrs of date, armed men suspected to be members of IPOB/ESN criminal gang in their numbers invaded Owerri Prisons mine using dynamites and other heavy explosives, gained entrance and released some inmates in the prison,” a security memo published by PR Nigeria said.
